How many Tabletistas does it take to change a blog?

Thirty-three and still counting … One to facilitate the focus group, exploring whether the blog was still relevant to the inner experience of the gathered community. A committee of six to conduct an in depth study to ensure that the content was as inclusive as possible and did not offend the feelings of any minority group. Another committee of six music ministers to compose cheesy and trashy background music. A steering group of twelve to organise an international symposium on the ministry of blogging in the twenty-first century. A sub-group of eight to do a field study on Islamic blogging … cont p94.

Do hope there are more clever variations on the lightbulb theme to come. I particularly enjoyed the Fransiscans and the Tabletistas!
